    Everything both looked and tasted exceptional. Surprisingly light tasting for a French restaurant. Server was excellent and the chef was very accommodating to a dietary concern. Great for date night.

    If you like squid & octopus, try the Squid Ink Tagliatelle, Braised Spanish Octopus, Chilies, Preserved Lemon, Manchego Cheese. This dish is delicious! Wonderfully pronounced squid/octopus taste.

    Veal and rabbit tagliatelle pasta dish was to die for! The free side, we picked string beans, was a perfect supplement to our meal. The Italian red wine by the glass was perfect with my dish.

    A French Provencal bistro overlooking the Boston Public Garden, this restaurant found the ideal way to bring together the passion for ingredient-driven cuisine with a refined, classic technique.

    Lovely place. Beef tartar was one of the best ever and croque madame was perfect to my liking.

    Excellent service and excellent savory dishes. This is a place in the fine dining mold. I have, however, never been that impressed by the output of the pastry kitchen.

    Food and service were high quality. The steamed mussels appetizer was wonderful. Wines by the glass get a generous pour.

    Sit on the 2nd floor for a nice brunch overlooking the park. Croque monsieur was to die for. Very attentive staff.

    The dessert was amazing and the food and wine. Some of their food choices were questionable but it was all delicious.

    There’s no better place in town to indulge in wine and charcuterie, those most Gallic of pleasures, than here. The Boston Globe has named Bistro du Midi the city’s “Best French Restaurant."

    Tuna tartare, charcuterie platter, beignets for dessert. One word: amazing.

    Order the lavender beignets but ask to replace the chocolate sauce with rhubarb berry sauce. The combination is amazing!

    If you wind up winding down with decadence here at Bistro du Midi, indulge in some Bordeaux with the duck. You won't be disappointed.

    (Best of Boston 2013-FRENCH) Improper Bostonian says, "No one ever refers to soufflé as "game-changing," but after tasting Bistro du Midi's, you might."

    Go upstairs, and hit Big Matt's bar. Ignore the menu and the wine list, and tell him to feed you.

    Bistro du Midi is a Restaurant with a capital R. None of that upscale pub grub that’s been going around. No waiters who want to be your pal. Read more

    Don't bother with the Steak Frites. The chef decided to use New York Strips instead of Hanger or Flat Iron steaks. Bad call!
